New Survey Suggests Cultural Ambivalence to Allergies Leaves Many Suffering Needlessly
Date:3/20/2008

ol of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

The survey of allergy sufferers also shed new light on the often hidden emotional impact of allergy symptoms. According to the survey, six in 10 sufferers (62 percent) report that their symptoms impact their mood. The sufferer survey also found that when experiencing symptoms about half (51 percent) say they feel annoyed; forty-eight percent say they feel irritable (48 percent); forty-two percent say they feel frustrated. And, two in 10 (22 percent) report that their allergy symptoms make them feel less attractive; nineteen percent feel self-conscious (19 percent).

"We need to empower people with allergies to speak up and treat their allergies as what they are -- a medical condition that can have difficult and sometimes debilitating effects," said Mike Tringale, director of external affairs, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). "Allergy sufferers should feel comfortable talking about their symptoms with their family, friends and healthcare providers."

About Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis affects more than 50 million people in the United States(1)(2) and accounts for more than 14 million physician office visits each year.(3) It is one of the most costly chronic illnesses in the United States(4) and is estimated to cause 100 million days of lost work per year.(5)

There are two forms of allergic rhinitis: seasonal and perennial. Seasonal allergic rhinitis (often referred to as "hay-fever") occurs only during certain times of the year and is commonly caused by allergies to tree, grass and weed pollen. Perennial allergic rhinitis can occur throughout the year and is caused by frequent exposure to allergens such as animal dander, indoor mold spores or house dust mites.(6)
